Previously I talked about why debugging in ColdFusion can be difficult. ASP.Net has full debugging facilities, including breakpoints, variable watching, stepping, etc. (when using Visual Studio). I decided to research the debugging scene in PHP. It appears that there are lots of options for debugging in PHP, and all of the above mentioned debugging features are available if you use the right tools. There is a debugger called DBG that offers break points, stepping, variable watching, on the fly variable substitution, and other features. PHPEclipse has some debugging features. And Zend’s own IDE offers debugging.As I said before, debugging is a huge weakness for ColdFusion, and I sincerely hope Adobe and/or the community comes up with a solution for this, sooner more than later.
